Right in the town centre, this beautiful cottage makes a perfect hideaway from which to explore the delights of Cockermouth on foot. Newly renovated and listed for 2020, this cute cottage comfortably sleeps six guests, making it ideal for couples or families.
On the top floor you’ll find a double bedroom with a modern en-suite. The first floor features a kingsize bedroom and a twin bedroom room, offering great flexibility for all the family. On the ground floor you can relax in the cosy living room with easy seating, Smart TV, and a coal effect fire for those cosy nights in.

Just 100 yards from the property is Main Street, the centre of this beautiful Cumbrian town. Cockermouth is very popular with locals and tourists, offering an array of independent speciality shops, restaurants and quaint coffee houses, a great selection of pubs and even a couple of microbreweries. Walking through the town, you can visit the birthplace of William Wordsworth, then across the river, you can feed the ducks and let the kids play in the memorial gardens. Cycle hire is also available locally, or you can enjoy a swim at the local leisure pool.
Home to the famous Jenning’s brewery, nestled beneath the castle walls, this picturesque thriving market town sits at the junction of the River Cocker and the River Derwent on its journey to the sea. Being right on the border of the Lake District National Park, you can choose between the rugged scenery of the lakes and mountains and the sandy beaches of the west Cumbrian coastline. You really have got the best of both worlds. Your nearest lake is Bassenthwaite, which sits at the foot of the Skiddaw range, offering fantastic walks and views across the Northern Fells.
Bassenthwaite is also home to The Lakes Distillery offering tasting tours, and The Lake District Wildlife Park which is a great day out with the family and only 6 miles away. The popular town of Keswick is 14 miles away, and for walkers and cycling enthusiasts, you’ll love Whinlatter Forest Park, or continue down the valley to Buttermere for stunning panoramic scenery. Cockleshell Cottage is a real find and perfect for your next adventure! Beach 10 miles. Shop 100 yards, pub 300 yards and restaurant 120 yards.
